It's been just over two weeks since the Early Access for Tip of the Spear: Task Force Elite released. Since then, updates have rolled out on a near-daily basis to squash bugs, integrate player feedback, and deliver new roadmap features, including bots. Behind the scenes, the design team has been hard at work on a slew of new content, and we wanted to share a progress update with you all.

The normal Early Access price will soon appear correctly as $19.99 on Steam. Post-Early Access, once all roadmap features are delivered the game will be priced at $24.99.
